Barbara Stanwyck is here to make peace with your flotilla

It’s difficult to return from a lengthy blog-absence without sounding like this guy, so I’m just going to sneak in and drop off some music for you and mumble something about how I’ll be back soon.

The Homosexuals, Hearts In Exile (Full Mix) (from Astral Glamour)
Congregacion, Cuantos Que No Tienen Y Merecen (from Viene)
Chrissy Zebby Tembo & Ngozi Family, Coffin Maker (from My Ancestors)
Jacques Dutronc, Fais Pas Çi, Fais Pas Ça (from Jacques Dutronc en Vogue)
Wire, Dot Dash (from Pink Flag)
Pylon, Crazy (Album Version) (from Chomp More)
Daisy Door, Du lebst in deiner Welt (Highlights Of My Dreams)
Sparks, My Other Voice (from No.1 In Heaven – EP)
Fox, Moustaches On the Moon (from Blue Hotel)
Elli & Jacno, Les Nuits De La Pleine Lune (from Symphonies de Poche)
Zombies, Brief Candles (from Odessey & Oracle)
Serge Gainsbourg, L’anamour (from Jane Birkin et Serge Gainsbourg)
